Beverly Hills residents and businesses have experienced disrupted postal services for the second time in eight days, said Marcia Hobbs, Publisher of The Courier.
The Courier building at the corner of North Santa Monica Boulevard and Canon Drive did not receive any mail today, except two books, for all the tenants. The same thing happened last week, three days in a row.
Several calls to the post office went virtually unanswered.
Postage was finally delivered Wednesday, at 4:45 p.m., following several calls and trips to the post office. Delivery was disrupted in the 90210-area, said the postman who delivered the mail. His services were enlisted to bring the postage when he was about to clock out for the day. “I was on my way home,” he said, explaining that he delivers to another segment of the City. “The regular carrier is not here.”
Frustration with the postal service is widespread. “It’s not just this post office,” he said, wishing to remain anonymous. “I have it at my own house. And no one takes complaints.”
In Beverly Hills, the postmaster, Koula Fuller, could not be reached.
The United States Postmaster General and CEO of the USPS is Megan J. Brennan.
